Where To Put Houseplants
Houseplants are simply plants that are grown indoors for ornamentation and decoration, and serve other purposes as well. The location you put houseplants in should be as close as possible to their natural habitat. In most cases, it’s the living room where you spend the greatest amount of your time. This is the room, therefore, that you would choose to decorate with plants. Light, temperature and humidity play major roles in the lives of your plants. You should first determine the quality of light in every location where you might put the plants. You probably should not rely solely on your eyes either for this. You might feel there is enough light because you can read, when in reality it might not be enough light for your houseplants. You need to also remember that light quality is not always constant. At one time, with the sun, the room has bright light. At night, when you have the lights on, you might believe it’s the same light, but it’s not as bright as sunlight.
Further, summertime in one room is not the same king of light as winter sunlight. Temperature is just as important. If you give a plant the correct lighting, generally they are also getting the necessary temperature. The problem with temperature is that in unheated rooms in the winter the temperature can drop too much for your plants. Kitchens are often overlooked as a proper place to put plants. But constant temperature and higher humidity often cause houseplants placed here to simply thrive. You can put herbs on the windowsill and blossoming summer plants and hanging planters can be placed around to simply decorate the kitchen. In a bathroom with good natural light, ferns do especially well.
